Summary

  • Javier ("Javi") was born in Ciego de Avila Cuba, and emigrated to the United States in 1999 when his little brother Jorge needed a bone marrow transplant. His brother, unfortunately, did not survive, but Javi went on to pursue his dream of building a future for immunocompromised kids like Jorge. He is passionate about both the art and science of medicine, poetry, photography, and the immune system's potential to change the way we approach infection, allergy and autoimmunity.
